    For those in the North East US Region and the Western Canada area, there is the Reviving the Islamic Spirit Conference also in Toronto, Canada.

    The one thing about Texas Dawah, and esp. this time, is that they are not interested in ONLY spirited and inspiring speeches, but rather lessons and education to take back home and implement. The “family in focus” sessions are designed to get at the heart of the family problems that Muslims are facing in America. And in this, it is pretty “ideologically neutral” because the matters are social and quite uncontroversial. This allows a better focus and a more academic approach.

    So, if people can attend, they should not miss this. For the sake of their own families!

    Wow. Ma sha Allah. May Allah bless the organizers, speakers and attendees. It looks soo awesome.

    Contrast that to the annual nonsense we have here in Toronto where the main attraction is poondi and “halal” concerts (sorry for being so blunt).

    I really want to come with my parents, but my parents can’t leave my grandmother alone for that many days.

Haleh Banani holds a Master’s Degree in clinical psychology, and this TDC her session is dedicated to the factors one should take in making this choice.
